May 052005
TAMPA (May 3, 2005) -- Siemens Energy & Automation today announced that DuPont Sourcing and Engineering has globally guidelined Siemens SIMATIC safety systems to be one of two approved supplier platforms. The scalable SIMATIC safety systems will allow DuPont Sourcing and Engineering to provide the highest levels of protection while finding the most cost-effective architectures for its processes.

"We are pleased that the SIMATIC safety systems have been globally selected by DuPont Sourcing and Engineering," said Robert James, manager of Siemens AS process safety. "This agreement allows DuPont Sourcing and Engineering to cost-effectively address their safety concerns and gives Siemens helpful input from an industry leader as we strive to meet the needs of this changing market."

Siemens SIMATIC safety systems are TUV certified to IEC 61508 for applications up to SIL 3 regardless of the system architecture. The Siemens SIMATIC safety system helps manufacturers like DuPont comply with the new IEC 61511 standard for Safety Instrumented Systems in the Process Industries.

"The modular SIMATIC safety system gives us a great deal of flexibility to reduce costs,” says DuPont engineer Richard Dunn. “We can now customize the system architecture to the specific availability requirements of the application. The safety system also interfaces with all of our existing control systems. In addition, the unique SIMATIC Safety Matrix cause and effects tool reduces engineering, commissioning, and maintenance costs."
